Climate Alarmists Trotting Out “Experts” To Prop Up Their Failed Science In View Of Gripping Cold

There couldn’t possibly be some collusion going on, could there?

MSNBC: Experts: Despite cold snap, earth still warming. Scientists not connecting recent blast of cold weather to climate change

ABC News: Experts: Cold Snap Doesn’t Disprove Global Warming. Climate experts say the extreme cold around the world doesn’t disprove global warming

The Telegraph: Cold weather ‘doesn’t undermine global warming science’. The current cold weather gripping the UK does not undermine the fact the world is warming, experts said today.

The first two are based on an AP article. Interesting that the headline is almost exactly the same. Usually, they change it a bit. Excerpt from MSNBC

Beijing had its coldest morning in almost 40 years and its biggest snowfall since 1951. Britain is suffering through its longest cold snap since 1981. And freezing weather is gripping the Deep South, including Florida’s orange groves and beaches.

Whatever happened to global warming?

Such weather doesn’t seem to fit with warnings from scientists that the Earth is warming because of greenhouse gases. But experts say the cold snap doesn’t disprove global warming at all – it’s just a blip in the long-term heating trend. (snip)

Scientists say man-made climate change does have the potential to cause more frequent and more severe weather extremes, such as heat waves, storms, floods, droughts and even cold spells. But experts interviewed by The Associated Press did not connect the current frigid blast to climate change.

So, greenhouse gasses released by Man are causing it to get cold? Do these people ever actually listen to themselves? In fact, there are 4 people mentioned in the article, and only one attempts, in a tiny way, to prop up what the article is saying? So, where are these experts? Let’s check the Telegraph

Stephen Dorling, of the University of East Anglia’s school of environmental sciences, said it was not surprising the cold period raised questions over climate change – but the snowy weather should not be used as evidence against it.

He said: ”It’s no surprise that people look out of their window at the snow and find it hard to rationalise what’s going on with the longer term trend.”

But he said it was wrong to focus on single events – whether they were cold snaps or heat waves – which were the product of natural variability.

Instead they should look at the underlying, longer term trends for the climate which were more ”robust” evidence of the changes which are happening.

Blah blah blah blah. The Telegraph used two experts. Steve Dorling from East Anglia? Wasn’t that where ClimateGate started? The article also uses Barry Grommett, from the Met Office, which has had some really idiotic predictions that keep failing, and, oh, yeah, has been accused of manipulating climate data, among others.
